Biography Katarzyna Glowicka

1977

Katarzyna Glowicka's artistic output embraces musical mediums of all types collaborating with stage directors, choreographers, visual artists, musicians and conductors on original works for opera, dance and symphonic orchestra distinguishable by her force of expression and color. Her works have all sought out a unique language which she compliments through use of the computer as both musical instrument and compositional tool.

Her works have been premiered by renowned international ensembles and soloists such as Ensemble Recherche, Holland Symfonia, the Netherlands Vocal Laboratorium, Ensemble 'de Ereprijs', British countertenor Jonathan Peter Kenny and saxophonist Ties Mellema among many others. The chamber piece Microgalaxies was commissioned and performed at the Wien Modern festival in Austria while other compositions have been performed at the Biennale di Venezia, Warsaw Autumn, 'De Suite' at 'De IJsbreker', Gaudeamus Music Week, International Women in New Music festival in California, ICMC in Barcelona and the Musica Electronica Nova in Poland.
Katarzyna had an early success when her orchestral work Gindry won the Polish Adam Didur Composition Competition. Since then her works have received recognition as finalist for the Genesis Prize for Opera in London and the Holland Symfonia Competition, while receiving awards from the European Commission, Polish Society of Contemporary Music and the Musica Sacra competition.

Katarzyna graduated from the Wroclaw Academy of Music in Poland under her mentor Grazyna Pstrokonska-Nawratil before pursuing postgraduate studies at the Royal Conservatory of Music in The Hague under Louis Andriessen, and at the Strasbourg Conservatory under Ivan Fedele. Her strong belief in the new computer mediums have taken her to Northern Ireland where she currently is a PhD candidate at the Sonic Arts Research Centre where she focuses on compositional systems.
